RENTALO.COM MAKES A CARIBBEAN VACATION AFFORDABLE THIS WINTER
Miami, FL, October 24, 2008—Okay, the economy is headed south, but families who are pinching pennies can also head south this winter. The secret: renting a Caribbean villa (especially before the Christmas holidays) through Rentalo.com, the leading on-line vacation rental directory. Rentalo offers beautiful Caribbean rentals for as little as $31.25 per person per night and their new website makes it easy to find such a bargain.The new website design features a photo slide show of each rental property, as well as a property map, complete property description, prominent contact information and an availability calendar—all on the same wide page. Travelers can choose the date, location, number of bedrooms, amenities and activities and query property owners, who then "bid" for their business. And the best part is that these villas and houses provide more space and more privacy—not to mention fully-equipped kitchens—for far, far less than the cost of a hotel room.
